Here are the Jane Stickle blocks completed in March. I’m not sure how well the center block in the second row will work. If I use it, I need to rework the outer narrow strips. Apparently my ruler slipped and it is not quite a full 5 inches wide. It should be an easy fix and I do have some more fabric.
The “Be Patient” block for my Be Attitudes quilt is ready for handwork. After a lot of tinkering to get background fabrics to satisfy me, the “Be Respectful” block is underway. It will be a real push to have it completed by Saturday when the next two block kits will be ready for pickup.
The hail was no fun yesterday and the wind was quite disconcerting last night, but we finally had a really good soaking rain. According to the LCRA gauges, the ranch had 4.08 inches and the closest gauge to us in town showed 2.39 inches. I can’t begin to say how happy we were to see it.
Here is a picture of the LCRA gauge on our property. When my parents lived on the ranch, the Lower Colorado River Authority asked permission to put a weather monitoring station there, one in a series throughout the region. It allows us to check on conditions any time via the Internet.
